    20 Box Backup is highly portable and likely to work on most Unix systems. However, the fact that your platform is not yet supported probably means that we don't have the experience and skills to support it ourselves, so if you want to use it on such a platform, it's more likely that you will need to be a developer and help to resolve any issues yourself. We welcome contributions, patches and assistance to support other platforms, especially volunteers to maintain support for them.

    22 Programmers notes describing how everything works are included in the ''notes'' directory within the distribution archive (or browse it online at source:box/trunk/docs).
     22If you want to run Box Backup on such a platform, you are welcome and encouraged to do so. It's more likely that you will need to be a developer and help to resolve any issues yourself. We welcome contributions, patches and assistance to support other platforms, especially volunteers to maintain support for them, and we will help where possible.

    24 As you will likely need to modify the source code, at least slightly, to build on a supported platform, we recommend that you download the very latest code from the [wiki:SourceCodeRepository source code repository], which will make it easier for you to submit patches and for us to accept them.
     24However, please note that each additional platform adds to the amount of work needed to test each release, and therefore slows down development. Unless someone volunteers to maintain the port, it's unlikely that we will add your platform to the list of supported platforms.
